Community Citizenship

We are serious about corporate social responsibility

Community involvement is a key element of life at Stikeman Elliott

Community volunteerism is crucial to Stikeman Elliott and a sense of social responsibility is deeply ingrained in the Toronto office. We are involved at both the firm level and the personal level in a wide variety of causes and organizations that reflect the passions and interests of our people.

We encourage all firm members to engage in our communities at the grassroots level and to support charities and groups that matter to them personally. Tell us what issues and organizations are important to you and we’ll help you give back.

An active pro bono program

Lawyers participate in a multi-faceted pro bono program, putting our legal expertise to work helping disadvantaged individuals and groups, or advancing social justice causes. We contribute in various ways, such as sitting on the boards of charities and not-for-profit organizations, acting as pro bono counsel to a wide variety of organizations, and representing a range of marginalized groups before the courts. We are also active members of the Osgoode Business Clinic, assisting small business owners with their legal business needs.

Leaders in green initiatives

Sustainability is not a recent trend for us. Over the years, we have made real changes in order to reduce Stikeman Elliott’s environmental footprint. Our GoingGreen initiative has produced measurable results – reducing our environmental footprint by 13% since 2008.
